Tim Stacey, Managing Director at Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicle Dealer Group, Rygor, is celebrating 25 years at the company this year and 10 years as MD.

Tim joined his team members this month at The Manor Hotel in Castle Combe for the company’s annual long service recognition lunch, which throws the spotlight on Rygor employees who have been with the company more than 10 years.

The company puts on these small, luxury lunches to allow guests the chance to talk one on one with the Board and colleagues from other branches across the Rygor Group.

February saw 15 Rygor team members join the Rygor Board of Directors for one of these celebratory lunches, where the team was able to find out more about the business and its history. They also had the opportunity to view a video dedicated to the them, with special messages from colleagues.
